The P. Gaines Co. has pioneered the whole concept of business self-help, with its series of books published for the last 20 years on incorporating a business for the midwest and Great Lakes states. The P. Gaines Co. is now adding volumes to its How to Form a Limited Liability Company Series, with the current release of How to Form Your Own California LLC* (*Limited Liability Company) Before the Ink Dries! The LLC is the new business entity designed for the multitude of small businesses because it allows them to have the freedom of a sole proprietorship while enjoying the liability protection of a corporation. It offers the best of both worlds. The concept has really swept the nation—all fifty states in the past decade have legally authorized the LLC form of business. Lawyers Weekly U.S.A. heralds a new age of simplified business start-ups: “The new IRS regulations will cause LLCs to replace partnerships and corporations for small business” (January 13, 1997 issue, cover story, page 1). Attorney and business consultant Hal Wright wholeheartedly agrees, noting that “your Boston terrier can set up an LLC under the new rules, It’s a no-brainer.” The author, Phillip Williams, Ph.D., approaches the topic of the limited liability company with humor and insight. He examines the pros and cons of LLCs, walks the reader step by step through the process of California LLC formation, and provides all needed forms in appendices. Although the law authorizing LLCs in California is very new (dating from the passage of the Beverly-Killen LLC Act of 1994), LLCs are rapidly replacing incorporation as the preferred way of organizing a business in the state. Currently, more than 4,000 new LLCs are being set up in California per month, rivaling the rate of new for-profit corporate formations in the state.
Drawing on his background as a former IRS employee, Phillip Williams writes authoritatively on the federal and state tax ramifications of the LLC form of business. The text is like a well-marked highway of do’s and don’t’s, complete with warning signs and danger flags alerting the reader to unusual, particularly complex, or problematic areas in which consultation with a tax adviser or attorney may be warranted.About the Author:
